Starting Point for our mob around the Fairgrounds, 4/14/2013.
Ready to go with grabbers and a found shopping cart aka mobile-trash-and-recyclable-carrier.
Mob in progress
We could’ve outfitted 2.5 people with the socks we found today
Trash in bag, recyclables in cart, nothing on ground
Taking advantage of what appears to be upcoming Jazz Fest recycling infrastructure — now why can’t such a receptacle be available ALL THE TIME and ALL OVER THE CITY?
Where do you throw trash if you don’t want anyone getting to it?: This area, which is completely fenced off from both the outside and inside of the Fair Grounds. Go figure.
We were able to reach a few pieces close enough to the fence with the grabbers.
Another trash nest, hidden away from the sidewalk.
Thanks again to NOLA Time Bank for lending us the grabbers. Good for trash nooks.
Jazz Fest awaits…
Flash flood before trash mob = trash fishing. Less dangerous than noodling, but way nastier.
Common recyclables: beer, liquor, juice, water, and sports drink containers, plastic #1-7 Common non-recyclables: cigarette butts, cigar wrappers, candy wrappers, chip bags, fast food containers, and PLASTIC STRAWS, oh so many plastic straws.
Ending point. Promptly got lost on Mystery St.
Your turn, Fair Grounds. Keep the Jazz swinging and the Fest clean.
Thanks to everyone who came out to D’beautify D’hemecourt – strong turnout for our first mob, 4/7/2013.
Cardboard Slug Mansion – nom nom.
